Owning a motorcycle can be pretty awesome. Insane speed, wind in your face and the freedom of parking pretty much anywhere. But it also means that you have to be twice as responsible and careful in traffic, so you can avoid situations like the one in the video.
A motorcycle rider in Georgia, USA pays the price and ends up crashing into a vehicle after recklessly lane splitting through freeway traffic. Luckily, the only major injury he suffered was a broken wrist.
The driver learned his lesson and next time we hope he'll drive responsibly and not so fast, knowing that by speeding he puts not only his life, but other lives in danger as well. Remember, just because you can fit between the cars in traffic, doesn't mean that you should split lanes.

    What is funny about this, -the car was actually in the lane before the bike hit him -Had the bike continued to split he would have been safe -This is the same guy preaching how safe it is to split traffic. -Even in states where it is safe to split traffic, filtering through "slow moving traffic" Ride like there is no tomorrow and there won't be a tomorrow.

    I hope the car wasn't damaged too bad.

    Fuck motorcycle dudes who do this. The car should have backed over him to finish the job.

    It only could have been filmed by another motorcyclist lane splitting behind him.

      Yes. And I also noticed that every single car on the road had wheels that were...ROUND. I think it's a conspiracy.

    As someone I know pointed out, THIS IS NOT LANE SPLITTING. And, if it was, then it should be noted that lane splitting is not legal in Georgia at this time anyway, so both riders are good candidates for Darwin awards. It was simply reckless riding and they are BOTH lucky to even be alive. Both of the riders in this clip should have lost their licenses. And the rider following didn't even stop to help? Great humanitarian. This is the sort of thing that gives riders a bad reputation.

      No, riding like @ssholes is what gives riders a bad reputation.

    While I agree that the rider is way too fast, I have watched this over and over and I cannot see that the car indicated that it was changing lanes. While it's an offense to ride like an idiot, it's also an offense to change lanes without indicating. Personally, I ride very defensively, I assume everyone is out to kill me!
